Soon, the blood spirits were annihilated, and the water in the spring turned a pale red hue. Now that they knew the spring was connected to the Night Sea outside, all they had to do was swim out. However, no one dared to recklessly enter the unknown depths of the spring.
“Mr. Leaveden, did you notice? That man and woman are Demonic Cultivators. When they fought earlier, I sensed a demonic aura emanating from them,” Zordey whispered beside Fayzon’s ear.
“I’ve realized that for a while,” Fayzon responded, having discerned long ago that Dalton and Rosetta were Demonic Cultivators.
“Doesn’t the Demon Seal Alliance specialize in hunting Demonic Cultivators? Now that we know they’re Demonic Cultivators, why aren’t you doing anything?” Zordey was eager for Fayzon to deal with the pair. If Jared dares to help them, he’ll be considered as colluding with Demonic Cultivators. In that case, he’ll be shunned by the other cultivators!
“Are you an idiot? Don’t you see Jared has been aiding the two Demonic Cultivators? If we act rashly now, we don’t stand a chance to win. Besides, we’re trapped here and need someone to guide us out. Once we’re back on the shore, we’ll expose the two Demonic Cultivators. By then, none of them can escape!” Fayzon had everything planned.
He’d tolerate them for now, but once they returned ashore, he would confront Jared. “That’s a good idea. When the time comes, we’ll join forces and ensure no one escapes.” Zordey sneered.
At that moment, Jared had no time to concern himself with the duo. He was frowning slightly at the deep waters of the spring.
“Mr. Chance, I’ll take the lead. We swam up from the spring earlier, so I’m somewhat familiar with the conditions in the water,” Dalton volunteered to guide the way.
Jared glanced at him and nodded. “Be careful. I’ll follow behind you. If anything seems off, retreat immediately.”
“All right.” With that, Dalton dived into the spring. Then, Jared, Cloud, and their party also plunged in. At that sight, the other cultivators followed suit.
Fayzon and Zordey were the last to remain on the shore. They exchanged glances before jumping in as well.
Relying on his memory, Dalton swam deeper into the water. Soon, he noticed a glowing entrance, which he recognized as the entrance to the lair of the blood spirits.
He hesitated. If we go in there and find more blood spirits inside, we’ll be at a disadvantage underwater. These blood spirits can revive limitlessly in the water, so we won’t stand a chance of defeating them.
Just then, Jared swam up to Dalton’s side and signaled him to follow. After that, he took the lead without hesitation and swam ahead.
Upon passing the entrance into the cave, the water inside was blood-red, resulting in lowered visibility and a blurry surrounding.
Jared could only rely on his spiritual sense to navigate the waters ahead. The moment they swam past the entrance, a layer of faint light enveloped everyone.
Instantly, a relaxing sensation permeated their bodies as the dense spiritual energy engulfed them. Everyone instantly began to absorb the abundant spiritual energy greedily.
Even the faintly red water in the spring was rich in spiritual energy, let alone the blood-red water here. Evidently, the blood-red water inside wasn’t diluted, so the spiritual energy there was the most concentrated.
At that instant, even Jared couldn’t resist soaking up the condensed spiritual energy, which was a rarity even in the Ethereal Realm.
As everyone absorbed the spiritual energy, they seemed to forget the dangers within the cave and stopped moving, submerged in the blood- red water as if they were in deep slumber.
Even Jared stopped swimming, immersed in the water like an infant as he felt the rich spiritual energy around him gushing into his body.
All of a sudden, the underwater currents seemed to tremble slightly.
